About Me

Hi there, friend. I’m Pookie, and I’ll be your Cannabis Consultant for the duration of this tour.

If you’re wondering what makes me qualified to dispense advice about cannabis, I have none other than my personal experiences. I am a medical and recreational cannabis user, and I’ve been consuming, growing, infusing, and baking with this plant for over two decades. I’m a skilled gluten-free baker, have several chronic health conditions for which cannabis provides relief, and I am a dedicated and conscientious advocate for total legalization.

My education is primarily in science, so I try to stick to the best science and available research when I’m talking about cannabis. I believe cannabis is magnificent enough on its own that we don’t need to inflate its good qualities or ignore its negative effects. If you ever see anything in any of my posts you believe to be scientifically inaccurate, please get in touch and let me know!

Enough about me, let’s talk about me

My professional background and expertise is in front-end WordPress development, UI, UX, design, illustration, content, and educational content and curriculum development for kids. I work full-time for myself and a small book of clients from a home office, and smoke cannabis daily.

I’ve been living with ADD/ADHD, chronic nerve and joint pain, and Celiac disorder my whole life. Having access to legal cannabis has been a game-changer for me. I am a more functional, balanced, and emotionally stable person since I have been able to medicate appropriately. I have less pain, anxiety and a healthy, full life. I make art in most of my free time, and I am publishing my first coloring book in November of 2018. Pre-order Pookie’s Cannabis Coloring Adventure on Kickstarter through 9/24/2018 for five free activity and coloring pages!

I live with lots of plants, my husband and partner-in-crime, abstract artist Tyson Estes, and our two furline roommates, Jackson Pawluck and Bruce Lee Little-Stinks Snowcat in Los Angeles. We spend our time cultivating, cooking, and consuming cannabis, creating creations, cuddling with cats, killin’ cupcakes, and camping in cougar country.
